Castle Rock Beach is a tiny little beach around the corner from the more well known Clontarf. To access, you will need to find a park on Ogilvy Rd or Duke of Edinburgh Parade, and take a short walk (via many stairs). Marked by the enormous rock that sits in the middle of this beach, Castle Rock is quite popular with the locals. When the sun shines, this beach puts on a beautiful display of blue and green colours, beckoning you to jump right into the water.
There are, however, no facilities here and this wee-sized beach can get a little crowded.
